New & Custom / Magnolia Modern
This modern custom home sits on a corner lot in Magnolia, facing gorgeous views of Elliott Bay, downtown Seattle, and Mount Rainier. The architectural inspiration was drawn from the massive shipping barges and their stacked containers seen floating in Puget Sound, and the nautical elements of Seattle’s history. The cantilevered upper floor is clad in grey zinc and creates a spacious and covered outdoor deck that flows naturally into the main living areas and can be used in all seasons.
The main floor of the home is an open plan with views from nearly every room. Balancing the daily function for family and hosting gatherings, the family den lives off the great room with large sliding divided-lite doors that can be closed off for privacy when needed.
The upper floor features three bedrooms, each with an ensuite bathroom; a nice feature for teenage kids and guests alike. The primary suite is oriented toward the territorial views of Elliot Bay and Mount Rainier, with floor to ceiling windows washing the bedroom in sunlight. Featuring high performance, passive rated windows and an airtight exterior, the home's large glazing walls help keep the home cool and comfortable throughout the year.
Axiom’s process and expert team provided a turn-key experience from site work and surveying, to schematic and conceptual design, through construction and interior design. This level of team integration and creative collaboration was instrumental to making this stunning modern home the marquee project in our 20+ years of building in Seattle!
